We travelled down to Oxford by bus from the end of the road. The bus service around here is excellent with buses arriving every fifteen minutes. I got my jacket potato fix in the Spa Cafe near Carfax Tower, then we meandered around the shops. We got the bus back to Sainsbury’s Superstore in Kidlington to forage for food to take back to the boat. The bus shelter was odd, it had two bars on which to park yer bum while you wait, a bit like bird perches! We didn’t mind that the afternoon was rather wet and drizzly as we relaxed aboard, reading books and of course our forums.
